Immigration: Deportation

Volume 688: debated on Monday 8 January 2007

asked Her Majesty's Government:

What is the average cost of a deportation appeal before the tribunal where the Home Office is represented by (a) a presenting officer; (b) the Treasury solicitor; and (c) Treasury counsel. [HL231]

The average cost of a deportation appeal before the tribunal where the Home Office is represented by a Home Office presenting officer is £2,054. The average cost where the Home Office is represented by Treasury counsel is £3,105.

Treasury solicitors do not represent the Home Office at appeal hearings and their role is limited to instructing Treasury counsel.
